5:46 pm
reports tim's father, wants a federal law to make hazing illegal and force colleges and universities to report hazing incidents. it's unbelievable to have your child ripped away from your life so cruelly and unnecessarily. it's been 2 years since jim and evelyn piazza's 19 year old son, timothy - died...from a hazing incident at his penn state university fraternity house. as we see other parents going through it, it feels like it happened to us all over again. it happened to richard braham's son, marquis... he went to the roof of a hotel and he jumped to his death. that was two days before he was due to go back to penn state and resume the hazing. the tragic deaths of their children because of hazing is why a group of parents are on capitol hill this week. they want federal legislation th and universities to enforce anti- hazing policies and report hazing to authorities...and the public...the north american interfraternity conference says hazing is wrong. and they support pennsylvania... that have made hazing a criminal offense.... federal

strategy which is really about transparency and making sure these issues are brought to light if we could have national transparency and reporting it would make a difference and parents would have an opportunity to look into each school and the fraternities and spirit groups and other clubs at that school and what's going on in them. the parents are asking lawmakers to pass two pieces of that has been stalled in congress since last year.... we just don't want this to happen to anyone else in washington, morgan wright.

(vicki) teachers and students are back at school this week after a teacher strike in oakland. and we are now learning 22-million dollars is being cut from next years budget-- to increase teachers pay. (grant) this means programs could be cut from school curriculums. today-- kron on's terisa estacio sat down with oakland's mayor libby schaaf to talk about the next steps and making sure students are taken care of. te:we've just had a big strike in oakland, glad that it ended. ls: i am glad that it ended and i recognize we still have a lot of work to do. and yes i am an oakland school
5:49 pm
graduate, i am a public school mom, and i'm also a mayor supported and a great public education system. and so while the strike is over right now, as a community we need to try and make sure that some of the cuts that need to be made don't impact kids. so i have put forward at least a partial restoration of the restorative justice program in the city's budget for consideration and i'm going to call on other partners to make sure studnets don't lose that critical program. and there are other unintended consequences. one that we are working right now is that the deadine for fafsa and cal grants was on march 2nd. this is financial aid from the state and federal government. if you are even thinking of going to college, make sure you get those applications in this week. our assemblymember rob bonta is putting forward emergency legislation for a one week deadline extension. ..
